Stewie The Duck, a lovable mascot for water safety, will be finding his way down to Collier County to join our Coalition’s drowning prevention efforts.
Stewie is the focal point of two children’s books: “Stewie The Duck Learns To Swim,” and “Swimming Lessons With Stewie The Duck.” He is often found at community events and in classroom settings, and will be a major focal point in our Coalition’s outreach efforts.
Created in 1990, the Stew Leonard III Water Safety Foundation was formed after Kim and Stew Leonard, Jr. lost their 21 month old toddler in an accidental drowning. Their foundation’s focus is to educate children and parents on water safety and nutritional awareness. You can learn more about the organization HERE.
